Healthy Smoothies help the Body’s Digestive Tract
It may seem complicated, but it’s really quite simple. Fruits and vegetables contain fiber, right? So, to get the full benefits out of the fiber in the produce, it is necessary to blend them up in a high-powered or quality blender. By using such a powerful blender, internal molecular inside the produce breaks down, thus releasing more nutrients and fiber that would otherwise pass through the digestive system. Well, eating raw fruits and vegetables are good for people, but most of the time chewing doesn’t cut them. By chewing the food, nutrients are obtained, but most of the time people don’t chew enough to fully breakdown the internal molecular. There is a common saying: “chew before you swallow” well it is true. When veggies are scarfed down without chewing them thoroughly, the body still gets nutrients from them, but the body will have to work harder because it has to break down the produce in order to digest it.
Breaking the produce down in a powerful blender, releases the digestive tract from the hard work of breaking down the produce. Through this process, food is reduced to small particles that are easily swallowed, which translates in effortlessly absorption of nutrients by the body.
